A call to prayer
Our Pastoral Team and Deacon Board is inviting our church to have a time of dedicated prayer for the next 4 weeks prior to the special members meeting on November 29th. The goal is to intentionally give space for God to step in, to take charge and allow His Spirit to minister to us individually and as a collective as we seek for self-reflection, resolve, a heart of openness/love and His direction moving forward. Let anticipate and experience the Lord “with us”. Please refer to this week’s communication letter for more details.
